This is a very adequate b & b. It's clean and spacious. There's no lift and all accommodation is up stairs. Our room had no balcony and the view was another roof. However the manager/owner was a really nice guy and came across as very genuine. He recommended a restaurant and he was spot on.

A B%B in a beautiful coastal village. Conveniently located, clean, well equipped. If this was not enough, the owner Mr Gianni is extremely helpful, polite and attentive. Honestly, I would not know what more to ask. Tip: ask mr Gianni for help with dinners, since he has been very helpful with me and the result has been outstanding. This is... More

Perfect, perfect, perfect is all I can say. The feast was an experience of a lifetime and no one wanted our vacation to end ever. We stayed a month...Gianni made us feel so at home while we visited our family in Puglia. From Polignano we took so many excursions in June we lost count. From Palese airport 54 € got... More

We stayed at B&B Grottone for last week. It was a great experience! :) The place is as beautiful and tidy as in the pictures (if not better even), we had a very warm, comfortable feels-like-home time there. The sea and the city center is indeed just a few steps away. Polignano a Mare (and the entire Puglia region) is... More

The memory that stays with us more than anything is Gianni's helpfulness, useful advice, enthusiasm and availability. The B&B was easy to find, parking was not a problem, and it is ideally placed for access to the town of Polignano a Mare and walks along the seafront. The market, shop and railway station were all within easy walking distance. Facilities... More

Not much more I can add to what has already been said: Lovely apartment with kitchen, great balcony, excellent location, incredibly helpful owner. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. One bonus I haven't seen mentioned: free use of the washing maching with an available clothes rack and clothes pins on your balcony.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Grottone Bed & Breakfast lies in the center of the district Gelso, one of the oldest and well known areas of Polignano a Mare. It’s literally just a few steps away from the picturesque panorama of the Domenico Modugno seafront, from the pristine waters of Cala Grottone, and from the beautiful beach basin of Cala Paguro. After just a short walk, crossing over the Lama Monachile bridge, one discovers the center of the town. The location is ideal for those wishing to visit the country without having to use a means of transport. ... more   less
